Randomness Recap

This is my first day back in the office as we took a little impromptu Monday off.  We went snowboarding and I can say that my neck feels like a semi hit it.  But I think it was probably due to the lack of snowboarding this season (it was my second time due to no snow until this weekend), 39"-51" of fresh new powder and a little skier dude running into the back of me.
Before you get all up on me, I was wearing a helmet, but still smacked my head on the powder.  My head is fine, my neck hurts.  Boo me.  I know.  But it was an amazingly awesome day with powder to my thighs and the best workout ever.
Last night we wanted to make a delicious snowboarding recovery meal and we decided to make Eat, Live, Run's Simple Chicken and Sausage Paella.  She doesn't claim it is authentic, but super good, fast and easy to make.  Especially for a weeknight meal.  Well we made it yesterday and I can say both my husband and I approve.  So good and healthy.  He even requested me to make it again next week.  So do yourself a favor, and go to her blog and make it.

Other than that, I am just going to rest, try not to move too much and pin new Valentine's nails for this evening.  So expect a post on that later this week.

In other news, my husband and I made Poor Man's Turtles to bring into our office today.  It took every ounce of willpower to not eat these all up before bringing them in.  They have been a hit.

My husband made us several fires over the weekend and this was by far my favorite time this weekend.
Cuddling by the fire drinking Scribe Wine (their 2012 Pinot Noir is amazing!)

And last night we figured out our Halloween costumes about 8 months in advance.  This is huge since we never dress up or go out for Halloween anymore.  I have never gone out with my husband for Halloween.  I USED to go out all the time with my friends for it, but the hubby isn't much into Halloween.  Basically, I can't wait until Halloween this year!

Anything super exciting in your future?  Have you had Poor Man's Turtles before?

  1. I'm super jealous of your snowboarding! I haven't gotten to go this year. Drinking wine by the fire is my favorite thing to do in the winter! I'm glad that you had such an awesome weekend!

    1. We have a real wood burning fireplace which isn't that normal around here anymore. Sometimes I hate how outdated parts of our house is (dated kitchen for sure), but then we have this awesome fire place that I can't get enough of.
